My son currently studies here and i am very happy with this school and its staff. The new principle, Mrs Green, is new but doing a great job! My son used to attend a private school before we moved to the community and i must say that after being in this school for more than 2 years now, he has grown intellectually and has made a great academic progress. I am really not sure why it is rated 5. Could be a rating from 5 - 6 years ago, not sure but it is definitely more.
PTA is very strong in this school as of late. The leadership, direction and guidance is especially strong. This school is a great place for my kids to develop and hopefully become strong members of the community. A++
School year 2015-2016 is just the beginning to good things to come. It started with our wonderful teachers and added a new principal named Dr. Nguyen. She has turn the school from a 3 star to a 4/5 star. You can find her on the playground & at the lunch tables, participating in our Walk & Roll program, directing morning and afternoon traffic in our bus loop & in our classrooms. She started a program called habits of the mind. It's a social and emotional lesson the students learn. Such as persisting, and managing impulses. I've seen her with both parents and kids & it's clear to me they mean a lot to her. She supports the teachers and staff and they all work together to make a safe, and good school.
The school was visited by a woman's group that misguided children into speaking about their personal relationships with their parents and siblings at home. These groups try and build trust by telling silly stories, amusing the children. Then they ask personal family questions trying to coheres a response. The most important lesson my child learned was to not trust adults outside of his family, but that is the world we live in. They did send home an extremely vague permission letter misleading parents to believe no such actions would be taking place and it was purely educational.
